Works Wonders!!!

First tried this after being obsessed with Korean skin care videos. Finally gave in after reading all the great reviews about it, and it did not disappoint! I've been using it after my toner for about half of the bottle until my recent trip to Korea. FYI, contrary to popular belief, you DON'T apply this particular essence right after the toner if the toner you're using has moisturizing properties, or is thicker than the FTE essence which is almost like water in consistency. When I hoarded this in Korea, the sales person from Missha told me that it has to applied right after cleansing! Thus the name FIRST Treatment Essence (ahaaaa!😉)! Rule of thumb: apply the thinnest skin products first before the thick ones like serums and creams. I can see better results now that I apply it before anything else. It keeps my skin so supple and soft!

They say this is the dupe for SK-II's first essence (apart from the IOPE one). I hadn't stopped using this ever since I bought my first bottle (around 5 years ago). I have to say this is what makes my skin look so supple--I'm already 32, started using this at 27, and my face didn't age much. It just didn't! They tell me I look 20+. (Except when I smile, since I like to smile with my eyes all the time, a few eye creases plague me) You gotta believe me on this. I feel practically naked on days when I ran out of this you'd see me heading to the nearest Missha store and buying it on regular price. And so I learned my lesson and always buy several of this to stock up during Missha 1+1 promos when I was still in Korea. Bought one again when I visited and right now I have 2 bottles ready for when the current one finishes. I apply this after cleansing (that's why it's called the FIRST essence) with a thin cotton pad tucked in between fingers in a way that only the middle finger will be used to gently glide the product on the face and neck. I can't LOVE LOVE LOVE this product enough! And don't worry, it will not break you out. I have the most sensitive skin in the world and I never broke out with this. Works like magic--for years!!!

Korean glam!

This essence is more watery compared to the Benton one that I tried. This one looks super posh though. It is encased in a big bottle of essence and it is very beautiful. It is expensive but a little goes a long way and you get what you pay for. I can't really compare it with the benton because both are great and worth their prices.

Worth the investment

I bought this from korea just out of curiosity and prayed that I won't regret the cost. I'm soooo glad I bought it! You don't know exactly what it does but your skin misses it when you stop using it. It's a very light way to hydrate skin. With the weather here, it's enough to let me skip the heavy moisturuzers when it's very humid. It helped my skin get softer and clearer too. Now I understand what Koreans call "bouncy" skin. It's worth the price. In reality, it's cheap because you only need 2-3 drops for face and neck. Hence, the bottle can last for about 6 months.

What Sorcery is This?!

I received a sample of this and I know this serves as a dupe for the SK-II essence so I figured I'd try it out. I've heard a lot of people raving about this product and I was instantly amazed at the results it gave me! My skin was suddenly super soft and smooth and hydrated I wonder what magic has Missha put into this essence to make it this good! The price is really steep but, I think this is a good investment! Definitely buying a full bottle of this soon.

They don't call it a revolution for nothing!

I recently gave in to the 10-step Korean skin care regimen, and they said that out of all the steps, essence is the most important! This particular one got A LOT of raves online. I definitely hesitated to buy because of the hefty price tag, but I thought, okay why not! 2 weeks later, I do not regret it at all. My skin has become less dry, more supple, and a bit brighter. I'm not sure if oil control is part of the package, but I was surprised to find my t-zone slightly less greasy, which is great! It comes on a bit sticky when applied, but the best way to apply it is to pat, pat, pat it into your skin repeatedly until fully absorbed. Packaging is so pretty, but can be prone to product wastage if you just use it on a cotton swab. I transfered it into a spray bottle and that made application so much easier. Yes, it is expensive. But better to spend now, your skin wiil thank you later!
